ASTC 3.0 internet streaming ability

ASTC 3.0 has live streaming simulcasting capability and multiple transmitters abilities.So the US stations will likely be forced to geo.block their internet feed and if they deploy the low power/multiple transmitter approach we may loss all US OTA access that we now have.Or they may stick with the single big tower transmission.In Canada a non mandated transmission change will likely not be deploted as the providers what you to buy their services.

ATSC 3.0 may not even be mandated for broadcasters in the US or Canada. UHDTV is not a must have by any means. It may be mandated for TV receivers and implemented by broadcasters if and when desired.

here is another public notice from the FCC...
http://transition.fcc.gov/Daily_Rele...A-16-451A1.pdf

I almost wish they would just get off the North American high horse, bite the bullet and scrap the entire ATSC thing just make everyone use DVB-T2 like everywhere else in the world. Would save broadcasters and consumers money in the long run, as the hardware is already out there on both ends and is dirt cheap in comparison... rather than redesigning a new system every 10 years...in the end making us pay a premium because we have to be "different".

4KTV with ATSC3.0 Tuner

Curious if anyone has seen any 4KTV?s on the market that have a ATSC3.0 tuner built-in. I?m in the market for a new TV but I haven?t found any that offer this yet - I?d like to future proof myself a bit since it seems some of the U.S. broadcasters will be pushing to start adopting this standard in 2018.

Wondering if anyone has any info.

You'd have to go to S. Korea for one right now.

Since the standards are not yet finalized, you're premature.

I remember when everyone wanted to Future Proof when changing from NTSC to ATSC 1.0 and pretty much everyone owns at least one ATSC TV in their house. Even if a TV is released with ATSC 3.0, it might take a decade for networks to upgrade their transmitters, cameras, studios and their master controls to support it, it was a big investment back in the day and a lot of networks have not been able to be profitable after such heavy investment. I don't think everything should be in 4K UHD, maybe sports and movies, everything else is fine in HD

FCC is voting on approval NOV 16 for ASTC 3.0.It does seem like some US broadcasters want it ASAP.Most of the repack US stations are purchasing 3.0 compatible equipment.Makes sense to wait it out for new TV if you use OTA .

The last set I purchased doesn't have a tuner. I use an HTPC with PVR software and a PC tuner to record OTA. Recordings can be watched using media players or on smart TVs with network playback capabilities. DLNA enabled TV tuners such as a HDHomerun can be used to watch live TV using DLNA media players or on smart TVs with DLNA enabled apps. That way the tuner can be upgraded as needed at a much lower price than replacing the entire TV.

The 3.0 standard is still years from a widespread rollout, but the countdown has officially begun.

It is not backward compatible, so broadcasters will have to simulcast in the current 1.0 during the transition. MVPDs must continue to carry ATSC signals but don't have to carry the new 3.0 signals.

ATSC 3.0 is the new broadcast transmission standard that will allow TV stations to do video on demand, other interactive services, provide 4K video, and more.

ASTC 3.0 FCC approved

US broadcasters can switch to 3.0 as long as their 1.0 signal is maintained by another broadcaster/sub channeled.
